Zotac Unleashes GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores Limited Edition Graphics Card

Now that Nvidia has made official its GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores GPU based on the GF110 graphics chip, hardware makers have started to announce their solutions built around this design and one of the first such video cards to be released comes courtesy of Zotac.

The card in question is none other than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores Limited Edition we had a glimpse of at the end of last week, before Nvidia made official its new core.

Back then however, we didn’t had any other information about Zotac’s creation other than what was printed on the box and some rumors stating that the card will arrive factory overclocked, which turned out to be true.

The factory overclock however isn’t as surprising as some of you may believe as the GPU is clocked at just 765MHz, which represents a 33MHz boost from Nvidia’s recommendations.

“PC gaming is a strong segment that continues to grow and now is the best time to upgrade for the latest DirectX 11 releases,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director at Zotac International.

“With the Zotac GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 cores Limited Edition, gamers can easily equip their PC to play the latest titles with ultra-quality settings up to 1080p – beyond what a console can deliver,” concluded the company’s rep.

The European price of the graphics card wasn’t provided by Zotac, but in the US this has an MSRP of $299, which makes it just a tad less expensive than its older brother, the GTX 570.

Both of these cards are based on the same GF110 graphics core, but in the case of this new GTX 560 Ti two out of the 16 SMs included in the Nvidia graphics core were disabled leaving the card with 448 streaming processors, 56 texture units, 40 ROP units and a 320-bit memory bus connected to 1.25GB of GDDR5 video buffer.
